​Back on Board

This song is by Aztec Camera and appears on the album High Land, Hard Rain (1983).

Heard it said it's a stupid thing
Everything that I follow through
Never got to our god, you see
Abandoned with the taste of the new, new, new and
Every time that whistle blows
I'm stranded in my shoes

Get me back on board
Pull me up with grace
Get me back on board
Let me be embraced
'Cause even after all those words
I want you for my own
Touch me when the sun comes up and
Tell me that we're home

We'll take a train to the graves again
That we can learn the value of life
Kick the snow with our shoe-heels
Shivers give me a smile in the night
Hey, honest to goodness, girl
I'd kiss you with the lips of the Lord
But to be honest to goodness
I feel I have to wait for the word, word, words and
Every time that whistle blows
I'm stranded in my shoes.

Get me back on board
Pull me up with grace
Get me back on board
Let me be embraced
'Cause I'm always, always trying to be
The archetypal free
The strangest something went to sleep
I buckled at the knees
So here we go, digging through those dustbins
Giving things new names

Get me back on board
Pull me up with grace
Get me back on board
Let me be embraced
Get me back on board
Pull me up with grace
Get me back on board
Here's my ticket
Where's the big embrace?
